Hi there,

I was wondering if there was a way to specify which blog posts the "Read more" link pops up on? 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance.

you can link the blog title to external page instead

Can you expand on your question?  Do you wish to hide/display read more on specific people in that page or just change it for that whole page?

I'd want to hide/display read more optionally. It wouldn't be changed for the whole page, only specific individual people, if that is more clear. Thank you both again!

You can use the nth-child selector to specify which of the items you wish to hide the read more link for:

The below code uses that Page's Collection ID to only apply this on that page, then finds every summary item in the brackets and applies display:none to the read more link.

#collection-5b74d2618a922db16ab6c7cc .summary-item:nth-child(3) .summary-read-more-link{ 


This will hide the 3rd item's read more link.  To hide more you will need the same selector with a different number in the brackets and separate them via a comma, eg:


#collection-5b74d2618a922db16ab6c7cc .summary-item:nth-child(3) .summary-read-more-link,
#collection-5b74d2618a922db16ab6c7cc .summary-item:nth-child(4) .summary-read-more-link,
#collection-5b74d2618a922db16ab6c7cc .summary-item:nth-child(8) .summary-read-more-link
